A HENLEY-In-Arden school girl jets out to Canada on Wednesday to star in a six-week run of The Secret Garden in Toronto.
Leading lady Ellie Coldicutt, aged 13, a pupil at The Kinglsey School in Leamington Spa, has already appeared in a professional production of the show in Edinburgh, a UK tour of The Sound of Music and the feature film Nativity!
Ellie said: “It is a big privilege for me to have the opportunity to do this. The rest of the cast are fantastic and the whole experience has been amazing so far.
“The curtain call is awesome.”
Ellie, who lives in Ullenhall with her mum Jane, dad Adrian and older sister Olivia, has been acting and singing since she was eight, and is a member of the school choir and enjoys piano lessons.
Mum Jane will act as her chaperone in Canada.
Mrs Coldicutt said: “Thanks to her teachers sending her work she has been able to keep up to date with fellow pupils.
“It is very important that her academic development doesn’t suffer because of her acting.”
